The bit about the "spargel" is also definitely true. It's like the crack cocaine of Germany, although I cannot understand why.

lol, the article reminds me of the same sort of verbal exchanges Ohio State and Michigan football fans have traditionally blasted each other with across our state border since I was an undergrad during the Woody Hayes vs Bo Schembechler era. Fun stuff, I wouldn't trade those times for anything, and long live the rivalry! 8)

1. I cross roads at red lights much to the chagrin of Pommie mates. :D
2. I don't stare so much as look down on people. 8)
3. I speak English better than any and all Californians and certainly better than Poms. :D
4. I stand up. :beer:
5. I hate asparagus. :x
6. I like upsetting authorities, thus I mix up my recycling. :D
7. "Dinner for One" is shown in Australia every New Years Eve & and gets raved over by the masses. Don't know why after you've seen it once. But then again Aussies like the Eurovision Song Contest. :D
8. I dislike sun lounges. :x

Makes me wonder what happened to my 100% German genes? :D
